Question about Rheem 50 Gallon FVR NATGAS Water Heater 6YR 22V50F1
After just a minute or 2, normal hot water turns cool. Heater is 12 years old and has not been flushed for at least 5 years. Gas fires right up after hot water is run.
The dip tube which carries the incoming cold water to the bottom of the tank is bad/gone. If you can find a rheem dealer you MAY be able to get a new one but it's probably time for a new water heater
